You know....I am sick of poeple blaming there animals for there lack of responsibility. When a dog "pitbull" is running around and the people around the neighborhood know that it's the "neighborhood dog", then they should look at the person that owns that dog. It's an animal for christ sake! It's not like we can just ask him to "stop attacking the cat, and put you hands behind your back...you are under arrest. You have the right to remain silent".......LOL. The owner wasn't paying attention to his "responsilbilty" and it got out of the fence.....I mean I feel bad for the cat owner but, it's really not the dogs fault. I mean we have more "homosapian" killings in Jacksonville, than we do "pitbull killings"....were not trying to ban human kind are we?????

They use a credit card to slip the lock.

From the newstories I've read, these dogs come in through doggie or pet doors that aren't secured. Not all pet doors have locks that are opened with special pet collars.

2 pit bulls break into Washington home and maul woman; victim in serious condition
Wednesday, August 22, 2007



GIG HARBOR, Wash. -- Two pit bull terriers broke into a house through a pet door Tuesday and attacked a woman in her bed, mauling her badly, a Pierce County sheriff's spokesman said.

The woman was able to grab a gun and try to shoot the dogs, then break away from the attack and lock herself in her car, where she called 911, sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.

The woman, who was not immediately identified, was taken to a hospital in Tacoma, where she was listed in serious condition.

Officers planned to talk to the dogs' owner.

The pit bulls also killed a neighbor's Jack Russell terrier, which entered the house during the attack, Troyer said.

"The thought is that the Jack Russell heard noise in the neighbor's house, came in and was attacked by the dogs," Troyer said.

Firefighters responded first, locking the dogs in the house, treating the woman and calling for an ambulance.

Officers "had to pepper spray and fight the dogs until they were detained. We almost had to shoot them on site," Troyer said.

The dogs were taken to a Humane Society and will probably be destroyed, he said.

It was not immediately known why the dogs entered the house, whether the woman had dogs of her own or what set off the attack.

My in-laws had raccoons coming in through the cats' pet doors. The raccoons would steal the cat food while the cats stood by. Very dangerous. Raccoons very often carry rabies not to mention can violently attack humans if they feel threatened.

These pet doors may not be such a great idea after all .

Raccoons are crazy dude. I thought these guys lived in the woods. I was wrong. I live in a very populated city in the Bay Area and I was getting out of my car when I saw what I though was a dog running down the street. I couldn't believe it when I saw a huge raccoon running in the middle of my very busy street. I guess they live in the sewers.

Your totally right. As much as I love any dog, I would have to defend my pets and family against an aggressive animal. I would be really upset after the fact though, and I just wish I am never in that situation.
